NASA announced that launched on October 5, 1984 and already disabled, the ERBS satellite (Earth Radiation Budget Satellite, Earth Radiation Balance Satellite) will return to Earth today, January 8. It is expected to burn up almost entirely in the atmosphere. And although some parts of the ERBS can survive during the passage through the dense layers of the atmosphere, NASA believes that they do not pose a danger.

For 21 years after the launch, ERBS studied how the Earth absorbs energy from the Sun, made measurements of stratospheric ozone, water vapor, nitrogen dioxide. Initially, the researchers expected that ERBS would only be able to collect data for 2 years, but in fact it lasted 10 times longer. The satellite was decommissioned in 2005.
